Butterfly Class

It can be hard trying to find different ways to add that little something extra to your layouts. Lou has created these fantastic butterfly embellishments which look stunning and are so simple to make. Here's how......
1. Draw a number 8 onto your patterned paper and cut it out.
2. Using a ruler and an embossing tool score lines horizontally across your number 8, close together about every 2-3mm.
3. Concertina your number 8.
4. Squeeze the centre of the butterfly together tightly and use some craft wire to hold it together. Curl the ends of the wire to form the antenna.

Don't forget you still have until the 9th August to enter our sketch challenge, all the details can be found here.
